Collaboration ETH Zurich – CNR IRPI Bari


Given the interesting potential of the work carried out during the Short Term Mobility CNR 2018 on development of numerical models for the analysis of the run-out phase of submarine landslides, Nunzio Luciano Fazio (Research Fellow at CNR-IRPI of Bari) was invited as Visiting Scientist at ETH for a further one month period to continue the collaboration. The goal was to investigate the effects of landslide triggering conditions on run-out phase of submarine landslides. This research topic comes from the need to define suitable numerical techniques for assessing the stability conditions of submarine slopes and evaluating the associated risk.
